The last time I posted a photo of some mystery flowers here on Ciao Amalfi several of my lovely readers quickly came to the rescue with the name of the flowers (Bottle Brush) and some great stories. Welcome to round two!
The other day I was dashing through the gardens at the Villa Rufolo when these strange red flowers stopped me in my tracks. As you can see, they are growing from one very large bulb. (Click on the image to view it larger.) Any ideas what these are called in English or Italian?
